Free Discussion, Fourth Quarter, 2015

Please use this post for discussion about the Gosselins that doesn't have a better spot elsewhere. Also please remember that while Gosselin discussion is fading (which is a good thing), this blog is for Gosselins only. We will continue as long as Kate is seeking public attention for those who wish to comment.

So if Kate doesn't want to put birthday pics of Mady and Cara up(per their requests), well then HOW in the world is she going to reconcile making them do the reality show when they DON'T want to do THAT?Oh, wait, she gets MONEY for doing that, so that makes it OK...Got it!

Maybe the twins agreed to be filmed because they are under contract to do so; there is no contract for them to have their photos published on their birthday. It is one thing to which they can say "no."

Debbie H said...

Can this show please DIE already? Maybe THIS will be the season to bring the lowest ratings and she will be gone forever...I mean, this train is almost at the destination anyway as the kids are getting OLDER, so I don't see how much longer she can milk it..especially if they don't WANT to do it and start voicing their opposition to it...

Go to Radaronline.....Kate is Kate..turn up the sound and listen to her....about dating...

She will not be gone forever. She keeps coming back and will continue to do so as long as TLC can make any money from the show. Ratings for so many shows are down now, and what at one time were bad ratings (when her show was cancelled) is now acceptable. Ratings will have nothing to do in not bringing her back in the future.

She may be used as filler now and then, but this is more than just a few specials, according to her and TLC. This is a season. She will not go down without a fight and so far it has worked. It doesn't matter if the kids are older. That brings in a whole new storyline, which is Kate raising pre-teens and teens. How will a single mom of eight teens do it all? Kate was filmed on a blind date set up by TLC. That's another storyline. TLC will think of something, even if it means showing Kate's ugly side when dealing with difficult teens.

According to TLC, the "series" begins on December 8, not the 15th.

Ratings ALWAYS matter - even for Her Supreme Highness Kate Gosselin. The ratings translate to ad money and if there is no ad money, there will be no show. It's really that simple.

Daydream Believer said...

If ratings always matter, then why is she back on for another full season? Ratings were dismal the last time around, but they always manage to get sponsors somewhere or other.
The same will be true for the new season. They are still making money off her or there would be no show. No network wants to lose money.

Betty said...

Ratings do matter. Kate's numbers may have been poor viewed generally, but they weren't abysmal for pitiful TLC. Last week TLC was 24th on the cable prime time list with an average prime time viewership of 650K. Kate was frequently bringing in close to twice that number. To say advertisers count and not ratings is to not understand how the industry works. No one goes to TLC and says I want to advertise on a Kate Gosselin show. TLC pitches viewership numbers to advertisers who usually buy a bulk package for a network to produce a certain number of viewers in a certain demographic group for a run of a set number of ads. Kate doesn't bring in advertisers. She merely brings in a few more viewers than some of their other shows as long as they don't over saturate the market.

EIGHT WEEKS....OH BROTHER


Kate Gosselin ✔ @Kateplusmy8

@A_Boltz December starting December 8 at 9pm... every week for 8 weeks! #NewSeason #KatePlus8 @TLC #SuperExciting

Debbie H said...

I think THIS will be the time nobody watches...Especially if the focus of the show is going to be on HER..NOBODY wants to watch HER going on dates and doing whatever...The last time TLC focused the show on Kate was the RV trip and fiasco and that pretty near did her in for YEARS...so bring on the focus on Kate so it will finally be over..

Anyone dating Kate on tv is doing just that. It's for tv. Not Kate. Ridiculous. The kids aren't babies and have own lives. While they're at school get a job. Anything. I live near them and could never understand,with all this wonderful Pennsylvania soil, they don't grow an organic garden. They have tons of land. Inform others on it. Saves money for big families. Show how big families make ends meet. I guess she doesn't because their money came from tv. Everyone else has to do it by working. But tips on communicating in a large family, dealing with issues, grow those organic vegetables, plant herbs. Teach something. It is The Learning Channel. I pray those kids have the lions share of the money in trust. I would not wish for anyone to hold that kind of resentment towards parents. Pedicures, sports cars, extensions, unnecessary house and property. I hope they have enough for a car when they turn 18. They've worked beyond for it.

Where has it been promoted that the show will focus on Kate? There has been one clip of her on a date, and as far as I know, that's it. Of course the kids will be included in all of these shows. It's about their vacations, the birthdays, back to school shopping...same as it's always been.

Heffner Road said...

where is Kate????she has not been on her web page since 11/23....

Heffner Road said...

article in yesterdays Reading Eagle (readingeagle.com)...stating Fourth season of Kate Plus 8 will feature twists, turns etc......same old crap...vacations, kids, dating etc....

Heffner Road said...

I watched the last 30 minutes...boring...the kids are brats especially the two older ones...and the six others not too much better...they back talk to Kate

Anyone else watch any or the whole show? Like to hear their opinions.

S said...

Is it just me, or did Kate seem really toned down by the end of the last season? Almost like she learned to be a better person. Her kids are kind of bratty but not worse than most teens.

Suzie O said...

I am happy to see kids talking back and/or being bratty because it is much better than the fear I used to see. She does seem to have mellowed a bit but makes excuses for her previous behavior which is very annoying.

mickey said...

Kate's kids act like her. The ultimate pay back.
